HTA's Meridian Water Phase 1 receives Planning Approval
Meridian Water is a major 20-year London regeneration programme led by Enfield Council, bringing 10,000 homes next to the Lea Valley Regional Park. In collaboration with Hawkins Brown and on behalf of Vistry Partnerships, HTA Design LLP successfully won the opportunity to deliver the first phase of this scheme around the new Meridian Water train station. 950 tenure blind homes, of which 50% will be affordable, will be delivered within five development parcels, defined by mixed-use landmark buildings. These will be linked by a series of public spaces to create one cohesive neighbourhood within a verdant parkland.
The scheme is designed to knit with the fabric of the local context; a generous boulevard will connect the train station in the west to the Lee Valley Regional Park in the east, creating a new neighbourhood which is enlivened by a rich mix of growing industries and communities. HTA and Hawkins Brown have successfully collaborated alongside two emerging practices, Fisher Cheng & Urban Projects Bureau, to design the first phase.
